Day 1 of 365 Days of Gratitude

Day 1 of 365 Days of Gratitude

January 1, 2018

I am grateful for the day of rest at home after the holidays. 
Stayed home with my boys and resisted the urge even to go to the 3 nearby malls.

Rest and sleep these days have become a luxury for some. 
Even many if not most take it for granted.  
So I truly grateful for the down time spent at home to rest and sleep.
And just be with my boys.

Grateful for finally being able to talk with my mommy and daddy.
Talked to them over the phone and sent our love and greetings for the new year.
My little guy had a short talk with his only caring grandma and grandpa!
My boys and I are always grateful for their love, time, support, care and concern.
 When we needed a family most, my family has been the one there for me and my boys... 
constant and true!

I am grateful for the gift of my family.
Through thick and thin they have been there for me and my boys.
We are truly grateful Lord for my family!
